What are PDO Thread Lifts?
At Renuvia Medical Center, Dr. Arthur Schlyer and his skilled aesthetic team perform innovative polydioxanone (PDO) MEDiTHREAD treatments as a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional facelift, neck lift, or body lift. With the ability to address areas of mild to moderate aging, a thread lift procedure with MEDiTHREAD can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even cellulite on the face, neck, and body. Using surgical-grade PDO threads, a MEDiTHREAD thread lift is performed by inserting the threads into the desired area and carefully tugging them in the necessary position to allow for a lifted outcome. The threads then help to increase the production of collagen and elastin, as well as draw hyaluronic acid to the area for naturally strengthened, more youthful skin. The threads are then dissolved by the body, requiring no second appointment for removal. If you are desiring to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without the need for surgery, you may be an ideal candidate for a thread lift procedure within our New Port Richey, FL facility. Contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.

- Upper and lower cheeks

Many patients at our facility may also desire to accompany their thread lift procedure with additional nonsurgical treatments, such as BOTOX® or dermal fillers. During your consultation, Dr. Schlyer and his team can discuss your various options and create a personalized treatment plan.
"I have always wanted to have more fullness in my breasts but haven’t wanted to undergo the traditional augmentation surgeries mostly due to downtime and other risks. Dr Schlyer was able to remove some of the excess fat from my abdomen and flanks and then use that fat to put extra volume in my breasts. I am so happy! I went from a very small B to a full C which is exactly what I was looking for!"- Anonymous / Office Visit / Mar 16, 2022
"I am a male in my early 40’s and have been seeing Dr. Schlyer for about 6 months. When I went to see him, I was always tired, couldn’t concentrate or focus on my work, and my libido was not what it used to be. Dr. Schlyer ran some tests and found my hormones were off balance. We started treatments and what a difference; I feel so much better! Now I can get more work done during the day and have enough energy for exercise, my weight has dropped and my libido is back! Thank you to Dr. Schlyer and his awesome staff!"- D.F. / Office Visit / Feb 07, 2022

What Can I Expect During a Thread Lift?
During your initial consultation, our aesthetic team will discuss your desired treatment outcome in order to curate a personalized procedure plan that best fits your needs. Before the start of your treatment, a local anesthetic may be administered to allow for a more comfortable procedure. Then, the treatment areas will be carefully marked to identify where the threads will enter and exit the skin. In order to insert the threads, a very fine needle with the threads will be carefully pulled to create a lifted result. After your thread lift treatment, you could start to notice some results right away, but optimal results may take around 2 – 3 months to appear. Complete recovery from your thread lift procedure can take around a couple of days to make sure any soreness or redness has diminished. Results can typically last for a year or more, and touch-up procedures can be performed to help maintain your results.
